The “medical event” a Jets rookie suffered which led to his car rolling off the road was actually a seizure, and police had to physically restrain him for his own safety.
According to A.J. Perez of NJ.com, documents detail that three officers reported to the scene of Jalen Saunders’ car accident, and one was taken to a nearby hospital to be evaluated for an injury sustained while assisting.
Jets coach Rex Ryan said that Saunders had a seizure, but was cleared to practice. He’s expected to play tonight.
“They just cleared him, so we feel good about that now,” Ryan said. “He’ll be ready to roll. Expect to see a great deal of him in this game against Philly on Thursday night as a receiver, as well as a punt returner.”
The good news is he’s been checked out and deemed well, so the issue of whether he can contribute to their special teams can again become an important one.
